I love pairing a dainty top with faux leather leggings because it's feels like a subdued way of being sassy. Sassy, just toned down a bit. Ya feel me? This top from XOMandySue was a love at first site type moment. I new I had to have it and it did not disappoint. It's super comfortable and flowy - hello post partum belly, please give me all the flowy tops. The detail in the neckline and on the sleeves is really what sold me though.
So this weekend I asked on Snapchat (themoderntulip) for questions to answer on today's post and y'all came through! I loved answering these so I will definitely do another q&a in the future!
Q: What do you order at Moe's?
A: This might be my favorite question because Snap peeps know I go every.single.Sunday for my cheat meal! I never get tired of it! I get nachos with chicken, rice, black beans, corn salsa, pickled jalapenos, black olives, queso on the side, extra chips and Strawberry Sprite. Delicious!
Q: How many months apart are Emery and Maddox?
A: 18 months
Q: What does your tattoo on your foot say and is your only one?
A: "carpediem" which means to seize the day. I have one more on my lower hip just below my bikini line of a cursive M that looks like a J and an M together for Jon and Maegen. I got it on my bachelorette party. Need I say more?
Q: How do you budget with just one income?
A: The answer is, we don't budget. It's not that I don't want to, because I would love to. But when you own your businesses it's truly impossible to budget. Our income is different every single month so I can't get a set number to go by ever. So I pay our bills first of course and now I just "know" what I can spend roughly at the grocery store or on frivolous things with what's left over.
Q: What's your favorite lipstick?
A: Oh boy... I have a few. I am loving Bare Minerals - my favorite color being "infamous", MAC "twig" has always been my go-to color, Stila matte liquid lips are my favorite right now! I love the color "Baci" the best and "beso" is my go-to red.
Q: Do you miss working?
A: I do and I don't. I miss being with Jon every day, all day. We have always been two peas in a pod and working together was fun for us. Also being at home all day every day came as a shock to me in the beginning with Maddox because I'm such a go, go, go personality. Now I make myself busy with playdates, church events, little odd jobs, house projects, blogging stuff that I can hardly find time to just sit any more. I sort of prefer it that way. I feel super lazy when I stay at home and sit a lot.
Q: Where are your favorite places to shop?
A: Nordstrom, TJMaxx, Gap, Old Navy, Sephora, Ulta -- just to name a few :) homegirl loves to shop! I haven't ever mentioned it publicly to avoid confrontation, but I haven't shopped at Target in almost a year.
Q: Will you and Jon have more kids?
A: This is undecided at the moment. We have both always said 3-4. Neither of us feel strongly pulled in either direction. I don't know that I feel like our family is finished, but I would also be perfectly content raising Maddox and Emery. Personally I love the idea of a big family... we have a bunch of kids, our kids have a bunch of kids and we have it Parenthood style with big family dinners in the backyard :)
Q: What camera do you use for your pictures?
A: I use a Nikon D7100 with a 50mm lens for my blog photos. Instagram photos I take with my iPhone and I use Afterlight and Facetune to edit.
